Dear Sir: 



The enclosed booklet is a statistical summary of 
the more important vegetable crops grown in Florida. 

While it isn't as complete as we would like to 
have made it, it is rather comprehensive in its scope. 
It is the result of the efforts of many contributing agen- 
cies, individuals, and members of our own staff. Without 
this wholehearted cooperation of the entire vegetable in- 
dustry, from the individual grower to the largest organ- 
ization, this work would not be possible. 

We realize that not everyone will be interested 
in all the contents of this booklet, but we feel that at 
least some part of the report should be of interest to any- 
one connected with the vegetable industry. Wo hope that we 
are right in our assumption and that it vail be of some 
real and worthwhile value to you. 

We vdsh to thank those of you who have contributed 
to this work and sincerely hope that you will continue to 
cooperate with us in serving the industry. If you have any 
suggestions for improving the presentation of the material 
we will appreciate receiving them. 



Yours very truly, 

J. C. Townsend, Jr. 
Agricultural Statistician

FOREWORD 

The Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service functioning as the field 
unit of Agricultural Estimates of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, United 
* States Department of Agriculture in cooperation with the Department of Economics, 
Agricultural Experiment Stations, University of Florida, again submits its annual 
summary of vegetable statistics. 

This booklet is orepared in response to a demand for county data relating to 
the acreage of vegetable crops within the State and for readily available statis- 
tical information concerning the production and value of these crops. Those croos 
which are of minor inportance commercially are not included in this summary. 
ITeither does it include vegetables grown in home gardens or in small market garden 
plots adjacent to some of our larger cities. The watermelon acreages do not in- 
clude plantings made strictly for seed. Data on potatoes refer only to the commer- 
cial crop. There are still a few crops which are commercially important in this 
State such as squash, sweet corn, okra, and green field peas on which we do not 
have adequate data for making current estimates. 

This year v. r e have- added a new feature which we hope will be interesting, infor- 
mative and helpful to those who are interested in analyzing their costs of produc- 
tion. After each of the principal crops there is a table showing the costs of pro- 
duction and returns for the 1946-47 season in selected areas where these crops are 
grown. This information is furnished by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. 
It is a new project. The data shown are strictly the results of samples taken and 
does not necessarily imply that they are averages for the acres shown. Both costs 
and returns are completed on the basis of acreage harvested and losses from weather 
or economic abandonment have not been considered. This is just the beginning of a 
valuable piece of work Which will be carried on each year. Tne usefulness and value 
of this information will increase as the series is developed over a period of years. 
With this information the grower should be able to better analyze his individual 
practices for after all low costs, efficient production and conservation of re- 
sources are- just as important as wise sales policies. 

ACigQWLEDGEMEETS 

The data contained in this rcnort except for shipment information arc estimates 
and are based on reports by, end interviews with, growers, shippers, marketing asso- 
ciations, seedsmen, county agricultural agents, railroad representatives, canners 
and processors, the Federal-State Inspection and Market News Services, the Florida 
State Marketing Bureau, the Florida State Marketing Board and its managers, the Pro- 
duction and Marketing Administration, and other well informed sources. T .7e would 
like to take this occasion to gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each person 
and organization who has contributed to the development of these data. 'Their 
cooperation makes these reports possible.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPINGS 

In order that competitive production within the State of Florida and the 
United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform 
groups, we have established a National pattern which is based on most active har- 
vesting periods. These major groups are WINTER, SPRING SUMMER, and FALL^ The 
WINTER group includes the months of January, February, and March; SPRING includes 
April, May, and June; SUMMER includes July, August, and September; and FALL includes 
October, November, and December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the har- 
vesting period for a particular grouping may extend over into the preceding or 
following group. However, in arranging our data we have followed these groupings 
in so far as it is practical. It can be readily seen that some systematic order of 
grouping is necessary for comparative purposes end, while they may not always agree 
with some local designations now in use, it is best for all concerned to handle our 
classifications on a National basis. 

PLA NTED ACREAGE 

Estimates of planted acres for any seasonal group consist of acres for herv^st 
(see below) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for har- 
vest during the season, but which was lost or destroyed and did not produce a crop 
in the season under consideration. This definition is based on a "loss of crop" 
concept. If the acreage is lost and not replanted it is counted as planted . If it 
is lost but replanted for harvest in the same season as the original acreage would 
have been harvested, the acreage replanted is not considered as additional acreage 
planted. But, if the acreage lost is replanted for harvest in a later season, it 
is considered as planted for both seasons and as acres for harvest only for the 
later season. 

ACRES HARVESTED OR. FOR HARVEST 

Acres harvested or for harvest is considered as being all acreage from which a 
crop could have been harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, 
etc.) Warranted the harvest. This includes mature acreage on which the harvest was 
postponed or delayed too long due to economic reasons and the production lost there- 
by. Acreage which produces such lor; yields or poor quality that the crop is not 
worth picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not in- 
cluded in the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces yields which 
would be harvested at reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT 

This category includes mature produ ction not harvested because of economic 
factors, such as low prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss of production in- 
cludes quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as production on 
acreage abandoned for economic reasons. Acreage abandoned at any stage of growth 
before maturity will be considered as los s of acreage or_ crop failure rather than 
economic abandonment of production. 



Ill 



YIELD 



Yield refers to total production of merchantable quality produced on on acre 
basis and may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic 
reasons. • •- 

PRODUCTION 

Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres harvested or for har- 
vest. Production of value is that part of the production which v.'as harvested and" 
sold or utilized v.hile in the fresh state and does not include economic abandonment. 

MIT VALUE OH PRICE 

All of the orices used in this resort are on an F.O.B. basis or its eouivalent, 
less selling charges. In the- case of some commodities which are sold in units other 
than the one listed, these units are converted into the equivalent of the ones used. 

TOTAL VALUE 

The total value is the price per unit times (X) the production of value. 
CANNED OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AND PRODUCTION 

The acreage of vegetables in Florida planted solely for canning and processing 
purposes during the period covered by this publication has been insignificant. The 
acreages of beans end tomatoes, the ■principal crops canned, are planted primarily 
for fresh market but during recent years substantial quantities have been canned. 
In order to conform to the Rational pattern for recording the fresh and processed 
production, we have shown the equivalent acreage on v/hich this processed production 
v. r ould have been grown and listed the remainder as acreage grown for fresh market 
production. 

COSTS AND RETURNS PER ACRE IN 
SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA 



These tables represent the summarization of grower records or estimates of 
costs and returns per acre from several vegetable crops in the major producing areas 
of Florida for the 1946-47 season as compiled by the Florida Agricultural Experiment 
Stations. Both costs rnd returns arc computed on the basis of acreage harvested and 
weather losses or economic abandonment have not been considered. In so far as 
possible, growing and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded 
from costs of materials.
